i am hoping we get some rain around here b/c i am dying to grill out!  we only have a charcoal grill and right now it's so dry that they are banned.  rain soon.....i hope!

i'm leaving you with a super easy, throw together, appetizer/salad recipe

cowboy caviar
2 {14 oz.} cans black beans, drained
1 {15 oz.} can hominy, drained
2 {14 oz.} cans black eyed peas, drained
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
4 green onions, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 medium bell pepper {any color works}
1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 {8 oz} fat free or light italian dressing
1 handful cilantro, chopped

combine all vegetables and beans, add dressing and cilantro.  refrigerate at least 2 hours so everything marinates together.  drain before serving, if there is a lot of access liquid.  serve with tortilla chips.
